Earlier this week the folks from AT&T announced they'll be the exclusive carrier of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet with 4G LTE. At the same time they detailed a pretty stellar deal offering the tablet for $199 (instead of $399) when bundled with participating Samsung Galaxy smartphones. A deal indeed. Today Samsung's confirmed Verizon wants in on the fun, and will be doing the same for the rest of June.
From what we're hearing, Verizon will be offering $100 off any Samsung 10-inch tablet with Verizon 4G LTE as a bundle deal for those purchasing the Galaxy S4, or the Galaxy S III. Instead of paying full price for the tablet, they'll give you $100 towards the tablet of your choice if you're also getting a new Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
And of course this requires a new 2-year contract, but that was expected. Samsung shared the details this evening over on Twitter, and Verizon's also updated their tablet support page with the $100 off sticker for those interested. They only have two 10-inch tablets available, but this is a good deal for those in need of a good smartphone/tablet combo for summer, or starting College soon.
Currently Verizon offers the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet with 16GB of storage and that S-Pen stylus for $499, so you'd get $100 off that slate. Or they also still offer the new Galaxy Tab 10.1-inch 2 model, but I'd go with the Note 10 if it were me. This deal from Samsung and Verizon runs through the end of June, so you'd better hurry and decide what phone and slate are right for you.
